“Come drink my beer” says brewmaster Umber Awasthi of Black Wheat Brewing Company
Brandon’s only brewery is set to officially open its tap room to the public at 11 AM on Friday, August 6th. They are located at 402-10th Street.
The tap room is designed to showcase the 6 varieties of beer brewed now on site.
Tap room manager, Dan Evans, says that the wildly popular Blue Hills Brew is “phenomenal” and should be on everyone’s list to try. He also notes that they have something special in store for beer aficionados. “We have a special beer to introduce for the grand opening. Something we haven’t canned or sold before. People are going to love it!”
In addition to new beer introductions, Black Wheat Brewing Company has invited the Poutine King food truck to join them on site for the grand opening weekend.
The brewery’s tasting room will be open 7 days a week, with early openings (11am) on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Black Wheat Brewing Company will hold a “Unique Hospitality” license, as issued by the Manitoba LGCA (Liquor, Gaming and Cannabis Authority). The license permits them to serve what is brewed on the premises. They are not operating as a lounge or dining room. There are no kitchen, or food preparation facilities on site.
Black Wheat Brewing Company has been operating since late 2020 and selling canned beer through vendors, golf courses and restaurants. Future plans include the sale of draft beer kegs from the brewery on 10th.
